Dancer/choreographer David Harvey makes his Festival debut with a solo dance piece centered around the idea of a "brake tender" -  the special car on a locomotive, filled with scrap metal to add weight, which aids in braking efficiency. Harvey deals with themes of vulnerability, self-imposed limitations, the weight of responsibility, and one’s attachment to aloneness.
